user control of every user interface component

From User Agent Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (2002-12-17) | Glossary for this source

This document distinguishes user interface features that are part of the user agent user interface and those that are part of content. Some checkpoints (e.g., those in guideline 5) require user control over rendering and behavior that is driven by content only. This document does not always explicitly require the same control over features of the user agent user interface. Nevertheless, this document (see checkpoint 7.3) does require user agents to follow software usability guidelines. The UAWG expects such usability guidelines to include requirements for user control over user interface behavior.Note: It is more difficult for users to distinguish content from user interface when both are rendered as sound in one temporal dimension, than it is when both are rendered visually in two spatial dimensions. Thus, the UAWG encourages developers of user agents that include audio output or synthesized speech output to apply the requirements of this document to both content and user agent components.
